When you put others first, you teach them that you come second.

We don’t use much of what we learn at school in our daily lives. The real-world, practical skills we acquire after school are mostly through imitation, self-learning and experimentation.

Traditional, hard skills, taught after school, like engineering, accounting, programming etc., are valued and are easy to measure. However, these skills are not permanent, and may only be valuable in the job market for a short while.

Problem Solving


Finding Time For Learning
  • Most adults who are juggling work, parenting and self-care find it hard to set aside time to learn anything new.
  • The desire to learn is there, as one knows the importance of upgrading one’s skill sets. The challenge is to find the time to learn.
  • The most fundamental strategy is not to spread ourselves too thin, and have only one project at a time. If we want to learn tennis, painting and coding, we need to pick one first.
  • If multiple projects are important to us, we still need to focus on learning one project at a time and pick the second one after progress is made on the first one.

Learning and memory benefit from active involvement. When you add speaking to it, the content becomes more defined in long-term memory and more memorable.
